A year ago I purchased a tempering machine from a French Chocolatier. i have tried using it a couple of times but i think i'm not using it correctly and didn't get any instruction leaflet with it. it takes up to 5kg of chocolate, i heat the chocolate then lower the temperature to 29c then up again to 32c. i think i need to do the seeding method with this type of machine but im not sure. please help me if you have any information. the machine is a tabletop DECO RELIEF France.

thank you

Hi Mariam,

Do you have a picture?  I went onto the Deco Relief site and they only appeared to have melting tanks.  If that is what you have then you will have to seed and provide the agitation required to temper.

Hi Mark,

Thank you for your reply. it's actually a melter but in the beginning i was a bit confused. I will try using the machine again this week and try the seeding method with it.

many thanks,
